July 29, 1862


My Dear Sir


The President desires me to acknowledge the receipt of your confidential communication of the 11th July and to say in reply that which he recognizes the kindness and the integrity of your motive in the suggestion you make, he does not consider it

decorous that he should recommend to his party at a distance any district course of political action.  He prefers to rely upon their own intelligence and patriotism.


Your  [XXX]  Servant

John M. Hay


Hon M W Delahay
